About West Lakes forestryJoin our foresters for a variety of woodland work.
Come and join the foresters and help them with their work in the western Lakes. Over the week you will be ‘beating up’ some of our recently planted fell-side woods with stunning views across the Wasdale and Eskdale valleys. There will also be some coppicing work along with invasive-species control. During the week you will also get the chance to learn how to make some charcoal in our kiln and take some away with you for your summer BBQs.
About the accommodation
The accommodation is spread over two floors consisting of a lounge/dining area with a log burner, a small kitchen and two areas consisting of five rooms. Outside you are 70 yards from the shore of Wastwater and there is plenty of outdoor and informal garden space. There is access to our boathouse and rowing boat less than a mile away.
